Our Staff and Trustees
The hostel staff team is employed and supported by a volunteer Board of Trustees and Directors, headed by our Chair, Myfanwy Tothill. They meet bi-monthly to monitor the work of the hostel and direct its future.
Our Manager, Angela Carter has been with the hostel since 1988 and leads a Staff Team of eleven people who support our clients throughout their time at the hostel and into the wider community.
The project support workers staff the hostel on a 24/7 rota and assist the hostel clients individually through the key-working process, using the Outcome Star model.
The tenant support worker continues this assistance when clients move out of the hostel and into independent accommodation and, in conjunction with the learning development worker, runs a regular tenancy training programme
The learning development worker assesses each client for education, training, volunteering and work needs, sourcing and providing daytime activities to address their requirements. She also recruits and manages a team of volunteers and organises events, trips and entertainments.
The staff team meets together with the chair of our board of trustees each week, to ensure the best possible service for our clients.
